Comfortable room close to the beach
We had a lovely stay and the hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. The location and cleanliness of the apartment were great as well. The hosts went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Specifically, Zelia made me tea and gave me a honey ginger mixture to help with my cold. To top it all off, a delicious breakfast was included. Overall an excellent experience.
Our stay with Zelia was delightful. As other reviews have said, Zelia and her husband really are the nicest people ever. We woke up to a fantastic, massive breakfast every morning. She also taught us how make the best Capirinha. The room was very comfortable and the wifi worked great. Absolutely perfect stay! A nossa estadia com Zelia foi delicioso. Como outros comentários disseram, Zelia e seu marido realmente são as pessoas mais agradáveis de sempre. Nós acordamos para um fantástico, café da manhã enorme, todas as manhãs. Ela também nos ensinou como fazer o melhor Capirinha. O quarto era muito confortável eo wifi funcionou bem. Absolutamente estadia perfeita!
I'm not a picky person to begin with; but, the experience I had with Zélia went beyond my expectations. Zélia is one of the nicest people I've ever met and the language barrier we had was not a problem all with the help of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translate. She made a nutritious breakfast every morning; which, was big enough for two; good if you have a big appetite. The room was clean and suited my needs. She provided towels with soap; and, the bathroom was really nice too. There is an armoire where you can put your luggage and clothes as well. Only problem was with the bed being a little short; but, since most people aren't 6'4" visitors shouldn't have a problem. The neighborhood and the apartment location couldn't be anymore perfect. The apartment was 2 blocks away from the beach; and it happened to be 4 blocks away from a friend whose parents still lived in Copacabana. The apartment is not only close to the beach; but, pretty much everything you need as far as food, banks, bars and etc. The doormen are great too. If you ever have a problem communicating with her, her daughter is usually around to answer any question. If you ever get a chance to meet her son Fillipe I suggest you do. He is very friendly and knowledgeable about Brasil and it's cultures. Simply put this room is exactly how it's listed so don't hesitate to rent from Zélia if you're looking for a private room.
This is the best place to stay in Copacabana! Highly recommended! The host Zelia is very nice and helpful. Plus serves the best breakfast in the world! We were very pleased with our stay. Very comfortable room with TV, Wifi and a big window to look at the trees. Definitely staying here next time I'm in Rio.
Zelia apartment was cozy, clean and an amazing location. She was an excellent host and really made our stay in Rio de Janiero an amazing one. Apartment - Location, location, location. Only 2 short blocks from the Copocabana beach in a nice neighborhood with many shops, restaurants nearby and about a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station (Siqueira Campos). The apartment itself is nice. Furnishing are classic as shown on the air bnb pictures. The room was very bright and with the window open the fresh breeze from the beach blows in. There are two single beds setup next to each other and it comfortably sleeps two. The room is cozy, not very big but perfectly sufficient for travelers mainly using the room for rest. You'll have everything you need at the apartment from a nice room, to clean bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room (I wish we have this in my current Air Bnb). Host - Zelia's hospitality really went above and beyond expectations since the time the reservation was made. Her communication and proactive follow-up is excellent. Although she doesn't speak English don't be dissuaded as her daughter (Monique) speaks excellent english and helps translate. We also made very good use with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate and had amazing conversations with Zelia. It felt like staying with family when staying with Zelia and her family. It was awesome to be with locals that provided us with local tips and recommendations. Her daughter took the time give us directions throughout the city. Zelia made us an decadent breakfast every morning (fresh squeezed oj, fresh fruits, yogurt, granola, coffee with milk, pastries etc.). It was the perfect start to each day. Zelia also proactively checked in on us every now and then sending text messages asking if we needed anything and making sure that we were ok. She also made arrangements for a taxi for us when we had to leave for the airport. I would definitely stay with Zelia again for my next visit to Rio de Janiero and highly recommended it to everyone. The experience was excellent and you will be staying with a very caring host in a great apartment by the beach.
La estadía en la casa de Zelia ha sido genial!! Todo fue increíble. Su amabilidad y su gran predisposición hicieron que me sintiera como en casa. Ha sido una de las personas mas maravillosas que me ha tocado conocer. Absolutamente recomiendo la estadía en su hogar y, destaco su desayuno como uno de los mejores placeres gastronómicos que podido probar!!!!!
Minha primeira experiência no airbnb, alugando quarto em casa de família. Nota 10!!!! Minha anfitriã, Zélia, muito simpática, atenciosa e gentil. Desde o início nos tratando muito bem. Carinho que não tem preço! Ótima localização, perto da praia, do metrô, de avenidas, restaurantes e bares. Voltaria muitas vezes à casa de Zélia!!! Obrigada Zélia e família por tornar essa experiência ainda melhor!
